    Default Dog does not want to enter area and foaming at the mouth???????

    Ok i experienced something yesterday with my BLM 16 month old pup that was extremely strange. We were walking on a heel at my Grandparents house (who had a 2 month old lab puppy) As i was walking zeus at a heel in the yard i walked through a circular area about 3 foot wide that he would NOT enter. He stopped in his tracks at my side and would not enter the circle he would prance around the outside of the circle but never entered. He also began to foam and drool at the mouth, which i looked up and seems to be triggered by some type of nerves or anxiety. After investigating the area it looked like my grandparents puppy may have used the bathroom in that area but it was hard to tell. Im not sure if some other sent was in the area that had him freaked out. Has anyone experienced this before?

    Yep!, happens everytime I walk into DMV, get registered mail from IRS and the government tells me the price will go down when they take over.
    Sorry I can't help with dog issues but really wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Thanks Raymond i know the feeling just trying to figure out what was the cause that triggered this for my dog what ever it is he hates it... i know my luck he will get to the last series of a trail or hunt test and not take a line because of one of these hot spots...

    Possible signs of a light seizure activity. Not saying it was, just something to think about. Don

    When I introduced my pup to the older dog same thing happened to the older dog. So much foam and drool it was amazing to see. He calmed down and it stopped.

    Don i don’t believe it was seizure, he also began to foam and drool at the mouth the two days before when he rode in the boat with another dog on the way to the hunting blind. Once in the blind he retrieved nicely and never showed any sign of it bothering him. i didn’t pay any mind to it. Then he started to drool and foam over this hot spot. He has been introduced to other dogs and around other dogs in training and he has never done any of this... IDK but it seems to be recently related to other dogs... He has never had a traumatic experience with another dog to cause this

    I take my 15 month old BLF to weekly training days. After we are done the dogs get some socializing time. The foaming at the mouth happens to her everytime. Probably an anxiety thing.

    Sounds like just a being a dog. Sometimes things just spook them, I wouldn't spend much time worry about this. Is he eating, is he pooping, is he active? If all yes? Move on

    Fairy rings...underground fungal mycelia. It's possible. You said it was a circle.

    Has your dog ever caught a toad or frog?

    Has this happened recently?

    If your dog caught one, bit it , or licked it, and said toad didn't turn into a Prince, then what happens, their eyes go in circles, and they foam at the mouth.

    Some of them remember that experience, and will foam when they get scent of a non prince type toad.

    Just an uneducated guess from Gooser

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.
